Remote Tower Updates
Hello <<First Name>>,

Here we are another month closer to summer and you have gotten the itch to dust off your plane, make plans for a quick trip to hither and yon. All you need is some decent weather. Never fear, it's on its way - eventually.

What are you doing in October? Not planning that far ahead?! Well, the airport is. As part of the Federal regulations to keep the airport's Operating Certificate they are required to perform a review of their emergency response.  Come be a part of the exercise. More info will follow as the time gets closer.
Pilots take no special joy in walking. Pilots like flying
Happy Tailwinds!!!
